2nd Amendment Sanctuary Cities and Counties

So-called “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” have been increasing in popularity around the country

Gun Owners of America began distributing this template for New York municipalities.  Essentially, they want municipalities to enact legislation prohibiting the use of monies to enforce the SAFE Act and other gun control laws.

I don’t see any problems asking locals not to spend money on gun control enforcement, however, SAFE itself is funded through the state budget and Albany legislators cannot defund it this way.  I am not aware of any New York municipality which has enacted something like this so I am unsure how effective this tactic is even from a public relations standpoint.  Generally, the best way to defeat gun control for gun owners to be involved in the selection and election processes for candidates at all levels of government.

NYC City Council on “ghost” guns

A typical tactic of the Left is to make up some phony issue, in this case “ghost” guns, get some of their elected supporters at the local level to pass legislation and/or memorializing resolutions which addresses the “problem”, and use this a mechanism to push for state and/or federal action on similar bills.

With astroturf advocating in Albany this week for even more gun control, I knew the Clown Council was going to chime in on this.

They did not disappoint:

“It will be a crime to own parts that can be used to forge homemade untraceable guns, under new legislation two City Council members are introducing Wednesday, the Daily News has learned. The bootleg weapons — which do not have serial numbers — making them impossible to trace, are commonly referred to as “ghost guns” … City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal (D-Manhattan) said it is “unnerving” that anyone with an internet connection and enough technical expertise can make a customized gun at home … Daneek Miller (D-Queens), who co-sponsored the bills with Rosenthal, said the NYPD has told him police have recovered some ghost guns but did not have a specific number … Miller thinks the bill is a chance to make a statement that might lead to federal legislation down the line. “New York City should be a leader, getting ahead of this,” Rosenthal said …”

Bill numbers are RES 866-2019 and INT 1548-2019.

The Resolution calls upon Congress to enact H.R.7115 from the 2017-18 session. The Introduction amends local law.

It could be any day

We’re virtually certain to get stuck with a mandatory storage law.

The set up:

From the sponsor:

“Gun owners in New York with children in their homes could soon face a misdemeanor charge if they don’t comply with the state’s safe storage requirements … Initially, the proposal imposed the requirement on all gun owners, but that language was struck from the bill on Thursday due to concerns from legislators, according to Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, a Westchester County Democrat who has sponsored the legislation for more than a decade. The amended language adds a violation with a maximum fine of $250 if a child, who doesn’t live at a residence, is “likely to gain access” to a gun … In light of the changes, Paulin anticipates the legislation is ready to pass both houses of the Legislature. “It could be any day,” she said …”

This crap has been around since the late 90s at least. It has been amended so many times it’s on like version 25. Everyone knows the idea is a stinker.
